The FREE Version

Working Together is the Key to Success

Download Information is Below

1. Information in Your Family Tree is Constantly Changing 2. Many Relatives May Be Working On Your Family History 3. Share With Your Family, Children, and Relatives

What's the Catch?

There is no fine print and there are no strings. You can use it forever and it will not time out. We don't even ask for your e-mail and we don't track you. It will not install other "garbage" programs on your computer.
We have three goals:
  1. Offer a free version so anyone can use it.
  2. Help Families work together.
  3.  Encourage you to use our "Suite" version.
